Joy, Bliss, Rapture

My darling son knocked an entire glass of water all over my laptop keyboard.  I'm using Calypso's (she's not happy to be sharing) to post this.  As I type my laptop is partially disassembled and drying out.  I don't know if it is going to be resurrected fully or not (though this is supposed to be he season for such things so let's hope...).  I will be back on line more predictably when I have regular access to a functional computer.

Breathing deeply......

Wishing a Happy Easter and Passover to all who observe.

Ugh. . . Hoping for the resurrection. . .

;)

(and, uh, you mean 'disassembled', right? Not that it's hiding its true intentions from you. Or is it? . . .)

as long as the laptop didn't scream "I'm melting...Oh what a world." you should be good to go...

Don't know if this works for real but find an air tight container and put the laptop and a bowl of rice inside. My computer geek buddy told someone about this once and swears its works.

Happy Easter to you and may the laptop emerge unscathed.

as long as it was just water you should be ok .. hope your holiday was lovely (minus the wet laptop)

Ugh.. poor you. I hope it will be working before too long. I've heard good things about the rice too.

Ah... the liquid spill of death for keyboards! I have experienced this setback on several occasions... due to clumsy sons, who are woefully sorry afterwards. I hope the miracle of the season helps to revive it.

Many Happy Easter wishes to you... including the wish that you get that chocolate dipped Jackman you've been wishing for, for so long! =;]

If not that... a new keyboard.

I've heard rice for cell phones, so I'm sure it's the same principle. I knocked a glass of red wine over my laptop once. It wasn't pretty - fried its insides.

Oh the humanity!

Hope your holiday was blessed with a resurrection.

Just Me said...

Hopefully the rest of your Easter was wonderful.

Happy Easter, kid. Here's hoping it gets dry and happy.

Oh, so that was your primal scream I heard? I thought it was a neighbor watching The Princess Bride. You know, the part where Westley is making "the sound of ultimate suffering."

Mother Theresa said...

Well, Easter is about resurrection, so I hope that applies to your laptop too. Hope you'll be back to blogging soon.

Hm. They say there are no accidents. Was your son subconsicouly (sp?)jealous of the computer? Or secretly angling to get a new computer in the house?
Or maybe just klutzy. I can relate to that. I am on my third keyboard at work due to my 'accidental' spills.

I know its too late, but a good rule of thumb is to never bring liquids in the vicinity of these computers...tell your darling :)
